100 Spring Essentials for Under $200
That’s the ad headline I saw. It prompted the questions like the following:
- If I buy only 99 of the 100 essential things, will I perish?
- Is there anything “essential” that costs more than $200?
- Is there anything truly essential that’s free?
“Essential” is what Jesus is.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.—John 3:36
